Comfort With Money A man at my father’s memorial party spoke of how much fun he and my father had once while they were making a lot of money. My sense of business is that a few people talk with each other about their ideas, trade energy, do research until a structure and budget is designed for developing a business. I don’t remember really enjoying Monopoly until recently but I think an attitude of play is good for making money. Comfort with Money might imply that comfort is something one...

Laughing and Clapping, May 2009 What would it mean to record applause and laughter at public events I choose to attend then bring those sounds into the home of people I have not met who have agreed to be hospitable? The laughing and clapping will be separated from the original context but the people who generated it originally will not know and I will not note where the sounds came from. Is exporting joy from one place to another transgressive with no victim? Families are the first audience for... Topic: performance art, soundscape composition, Andrea Callard

Between the ages of 4-15, I lived in Muncie, Indiana when it was a hub of industrial commerce. Besides agriculture, there were factories that made products made of glass, zinc, copper, and steel. There is still an active network of freight railways originally built to move the results and it is a strong factor in the soundscape. Around the clock, trains pass through Muncie on many different tracks that intersect the streets and this happens around the clock. There is a person on the train that...

Repositioning Myself in the Marketplace is a monologue mixed with field recordings. I worked extensively as a visiting or teaching artist in educational settings, carrying ideas and practices from the art world into other territories of public education. I began thinking of all the people I had known and enjoyed and been influenced by during earlier parts of my life. I wanted to be with them again as I moved into a new period of creative work but the people were spread all over so I made this... Topic: performance art, soundscape composition, Andrea Callard

Soundscape compositions, originally made for Resonance FM and broadcast in 2002. The pieces explore the sound environment of the community in which I lived at the time, and it relationship to the people that lived there. The first piece focuses on the sound of traffic, which is an inescapable feature of the sound environment in the area. It is a sound that annoyed me intensely, so I decided to find out whether other people living locally shared my view, by interviewing people living close to...

Despite roots in acoustic ecology and soundscape studies, the practice and study of soundscape composition is often grouped with, or has grown out of the acousmatic music tradition. This can be observed in the positioning of soundscape compositions juxtaposed with acousmatic music compositions in concert programmes, CD compilations and university syllabuses. Not only does this positioning inform how soundscape composition is listened to, but also how it is produced, sonically and...

These recordings present three different perspectives on the soundscape of a particular time and place. The sonic materials were gathered during a group soundwalk conducted on 7th March 2010, from Bridport to West Bay on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset, UK. The walkers both documented the soundmarks of this landscape, and interacted with objects during the walk to create new sounds. These were then edited by the different individuals involved, and processed to different degrees. The pieces...

During the summer of 2004, Wimborne Community Theatre (Dorset, UK) performed a site-specific play in a local woodland, Holt Forest, based on local stories and histories about the wood. This composition features sounds recorded as the play was developed and performed, providing both a documentary account of the Holt Forest Project, and an insight into how people relate to a woodland environment close to where they live. Recordings made as part of the project were featured in an installation at... Topics: soundscape composition, field recording, ambient, soundmark, sound art, site-specific, theatre,...
Nel lavoro si ricostruisce l'evoluzione teorica del concetto di "paesaggio sonoro" a partire dagli anni '60 fino ai giorni nostri, ponendo l'attenzione sulle principali scuole canadesi ed europee. Si propone quindi un utilizzo più musicale del concetto, al fine di mostrare come questo possa contribuire a comprendere alcune esperienze musicali del Novecento da sempre difficilmente accessibili alla riflessione propriamente musicologica.
